Resumo

Foreign policy and diplomacy are, within the framework of International Relations studies in general, two categories that enjoy great prominence. In practical terms, they have a close, symbiotic bond and even the idea persists that both mean the same thing. However, from a theoretical-conceptual perspective, foreign policy broadly implies the objectives of the state at the international level, while diplomacy reflects the means to achieve them. Based on this, this paper seeks to identify and reflect on the central axes that crossed the dynamics of Foreign Policy and Diplomacy of Bolivia during the three governments of Evo Morales (2006- 2019). Likewise, a brief projection is made on this very particular binomial after the return of MAS to power, following the triumph of Luis Arce and David Choquehuanca on October 18, 2020.

Política exterior y diplomacia son, en el marco de los estudios de las Relaciones Internacionales en general, dos categorías que gozan de gran protagonismo. En términos prácticos, poseen una vinculación estrecha, simbiótica e incluso, persiste la idea que ambas significan lo mismo. No obstante, desde una perspectiva teórico-conceptual, la política exterior implica, en líneas generales, los objetivos del Estado en el plano internacional, mientras que la diplomacia refleja los medios para concretarlos. En base a ello, el presente escrito procura identificar y reflexionar sobre los ejes centrales que atravesó la dinámica de la política exterior y la diplomacia de Bolivia durante los tres gobiernos de Evo Morales (2006-2019). Asimismo, se realiza una breve proyección sobre este binomio tan particular a partir del regreso del MAS al poder, tras el triunfo de Luis Arce y David Choquehuanca el 18 de octubre de 2020.
